I will cross train. I will cross train. I will. cross. train. by Mollyb Posted Wed 06 Oct 2010 7:36am This morning was pretty typical.  I woke up, somehow mixed up my contact lenses and put the wrong ones in each eye.  Then I shook up the container of almond milk, which wasn't closed all the way so it went all over the place (I've done this several times in my life).  But then my Mom, who is visiting us after retiring from her job last week, pu ...

Strength Training Programs: Is Cross-Training Necessary? by Eric C. Healthy Living Professional Posted Fri 11 Feb 2011 7:01am As I noted earlier in the week, I’m two weeks in to the new Lean Hybrid Muscle program and really enjoying it.  It’s a pretty significant change of pace from what I might call my normal programming that’s geared toward predominantly increasing strength and overall athleticism – but it’s working extremely well.  As the saying goes, “The best pro ...

Healthy Living ProfessionalHealth Maven Posted Wed 28 Jul 2010 5:17pm Thanks to those of you who attended my talk at Fleet Feet/Runner’s High in Menlo Park, CA.  Below is a summary of some of the key points we covered.

Rode the Expresso Bike for 7.4 Miles as Cross Training by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Fri 25 Jan 2013 12:00am Today is a non-running day, and I thought I'd go to the community gym and ride the Expresso bike as cross training. I rode that bike for the first time on Wednesday. My cross training is supposed to be restful, but I found today that I pushed quite hard trying to go as fast through the courses as I could. When I finished I was huffing and puffin ... Read on »
cross training by Namrita Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 18 Nov 2008 12:21am I am mixing in a lot more cross training this season with my 2009 base building. It's kind of demoralizing to always feel sore, though. Between strength training, running, base miles, and riding the new fixie to school my legs feel like blocks of lead every day. I'm hoping this will translate into something good when I finally taper o ... Read on »
P90X: Great Cross-Training For Runners by Ryan K. Patient Expert Posted Thu 15 Jan 2009 6:29pm Any exercise program or equipment that uses “As Seen On TV” for marketing makes me extremely skeptical.  While the new P90X training program does use that promotional phrase, runners will benefit much more from this type of cross-training exercise than with normal weight lifting for four main reasons.      Exercises in the P90X program will ...

I live in the south end of the Salt Lake valley, and the snow hasn't been deep at my house, but in Salt Lake City it has been very deep. In one storm, for example, there was 3 inches at my house and 20 inches in Salt Lake City. Except for the past couple of days, the daytime temperatures ha ... Read on »

How to Cross Train as a Runner: Ride a Bike by Cord C. Patient Expert Posted Sun 24 Aug 2008 5:26pm As runners, it is easy to get in a groove of lacing up the shoes day in and day out, giving little thought to any other sort of training. Triathletes on the other hand cross train on a daily basis. One day we hit the pool and the next we are on the bike. Brick workouts take it to another level, combining multiple sports into one intense train ... Read on »
